Digital That’s As Good As Analogue

Thanks to the addition of lossless digital volume control, it is also the ideal cornerstone of a minimalist audio system for music lovers who have moved on to digital but crave the full performance of the analogue original. This DAC, combined with a pair of Mola-Mola Kaluga monoblocks constitutes the finest digital replay chain available, irrespective of price.
